Divided interest: Galatica or Earthsea

Hi! This post appears on one of my other blogs. Have a nice day!. Last Sunday they were airing the second part of new Battlestar Galactica. The Battlestar Galactica starred Lorne Greene, Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict. A fleet of star ships fleeing their world (which was composed of 12 planets) destroyed by their enemies the Cylons. The rag tag fleet is in search of the legendary 13 planet called Earth. If you suspect that this show has religious overtones, the twelve planets and the twelve tribes of Israel and their search for the 13th planet/tribe, it has but not as deep as CS Lewis "Silent Planet" trilogy. The series came out during the time of Star Wars and thrived for a while. Although I must confess I was rooting for the cylons and there phrase "by your command". They seemed to be more interesting. And of course there was the traitor Count Baltar, played by John Calicos who was beheaded in the first part or was it in the movie? but subsequently appeared in the series with the cylons.
